NEW ELECTRIC MIDI BUS BY BYD
BYD, Build Your Dreams, from the Chinese Shenzhen, shows quite some new developments at its spacious stand at Busworld. It also features a giant Busworld scoop: an 8.75m midi bus with a fully low floor with full air conditioning which is, according to BYD, full of big bus features.
Already 21 of these were sold to Transdev to be deployed in the Dutch province of Noord-Holland. A second milestone is the first BYD 12m bus completely built in Europe, assembled in their newly opened factory in the Hungarian Komarom. The midi bus completes the BYD product range that consisted up to now of 10.2m, 10.8m and 12 single-deckers and a 18m articulated version as well as some double-deckers.
The look of the BYDs is now more closely aligned with the European style and culture. It will be the standard - one look - for all future BYD e-buses. Furthermore, Busworld is the place for BYD to show a number of changes such as another battery placement, ergonomic driver’s seat, led lighting and a new sprinkler system for the battery compartment.
